Just a short post today, to share something old and something new. No.....this is not about a marriage, but about things I spotted at a fleamarket and in our garden :-)!
I have been searching for a red enamel jar for some time now, and two weeks ago I found just the thing. It was covered in big white polka dots, and smiled at me from the store cupboard ;-)! I gave it a special place in our outdoor kitchen, so that it catches my eye as often as possible. The little Chinese bowls with the pastel flowers I bought at a fleamarket for almost nothing. The PIP teatowel is from the new PIP autumn collection, which is in store now. They have some beautiful new items.
Autumn is fast approaching. New flowers are in bloom in our garden; dahlia's, goldenrodes, sedum, Japanese anemones and hydrangeas. Some roses are flowering for the second time. The sweet peas are growing fast and filling the garden with their delicious scent. I can hardly keep up picking. Twice a week I come home with my arms full of flowers. Vases of sweet peas, dahlias, zinnias and nigella seed heads beautify our home. Nowadays our house often looks like a flower shop. There are bunches of flowers everywhere; in the living room, kitchen, even some in the bedroom.
Onions, herbs and garlic are drying under the roof of the veranda. Tiny green tomatoes are waiting to turn red or yellow and I have to keep an eye on the courgette's. Before you know it they have the size of a baseball bat. The potatoe plant is full of tiny white flowers. Blueberries are almost ready to be picked. I could go on and on.....but, I would love to hear how your garden is growing!
